This was about 3 weeks or so ago at a local coffee shop.

Chris, that hat is perfect for the whole look, much better than a baseball cap and, I am guessing, much more protective in that desert sun.  

I am one of those people who simply does not look good in hats.  Fortunately, it helps that I don't enjoy wearing them, either. Big Grin

I've never been comfortable in a hat until I started shaving my head. Prior to that, I wouldn't even wear wool beanies in the winter. Hats and I just didn't get along...until we needed to. Now I have a selection of wide brim hats, cowboy hats, flat caps, driver's caps, ball caps, and a bunch of beanie options for winter time.

The cowboy hat in the photo is currently my favorite. Lightweight for the heat of the summer, and protects neck, scalp, and ears far better than sunscreen alone can...

Interesting. I've been just the opposite. I don't find hats nearly as comfortable now that I shave my head. I do wear the occasional ball cap (like in the picture above) if I know I'll be out all day. I've got a handful of nice felts that only make it out a few times a year these days. I have an old straw that I really only wear to do yard work in. I really need to pick up a new palm leaf. I had one that I ruined in a river expedition in Oklahoma a few years ago. Most comfortable cowboy had I've ever owned.

Lovely moustaches and beards, gentlemen! Happy2
I have no idea how you guys tolerate the beards during the heat/summer months. I never had any patience. Shy

It's all about the sunburn. I'm of German heritage, and as such, I am very pale. I got blistering sunburn as a child all over my back and shoulders, and spent several days in the hospital for treatments. I was 6. Those memories stick around...

So I wear hats outside. Unless it is early morning or evening, when the sun is low enough to lose intensity, I wear hats outside. It's a curse...
